Marcus Burley Headshot

Marcus Burley (hamstring) will not play Week 7.

Burley strained his hamstring in the Week 6 contest against the Titans, and was forced to leave the game. He was held out of practice all week, and the injury looks to be significant at this point. While not bereft of talent at corner, his absence does weaken the Brown secondary as they head to Cincy to take on the Bengals.

Josh Magette Headshot

Hawks will waive point guard Josh Magette.

He was operating on a training camp contract, while other players were recovering from bumps and bruises. He was never considered a true option to make the 1 final roster, and that has now become a reality for 26-year old point guard.

Sam Freeman Headshot

Sam Freeman signed a minor league contract with the Braves.

Freeman boasts a good arm that can rack up the Ks, but also suffers from a lack of control. He spent the bulk of last year in Triple-A with the Brewers' minor league affiliate at Colorado Springs, where he was not exactly unhittable, posting a 5.20 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over 55 and 1/3 innings. He could wind up in the Braves bullpen if he can demonstrate a return to form in the spring.

Jordan Matthews Headshot

Jordan Matthews (knee) will play Sunday.

His knee tendinitis will not hold him out against the Vikings on Sunday. Note, though, that the Minnesota defense has been stingy against opposing receivers, and if Matthews were to snag a TD pass, he would be just the third WR to score a TD against the Vikes this season. With his rookie QB now struggling to produce, those are not good odds to rely upon, even with him able to practice in full on Thursday.

Kelly Olynyk Headshot

Kelly Olynyk has been cleared for limited contact in practice.

Even given this development, it is not expected that the center will be back before mid-November. In the meantime, Boston will roll with starters Al Horford and Amir Johnson, and rely on Jonas Jerebko and Tyler Zeller to serve as their backups.

Darian Thompson Headshot

Darian Thompson (foot) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Thompson has not been on the field since suffering a sprained foot in Week 2. He did not practice all week, so this announcement is no huge shock. No word on when he is expected to return to active duty, either.
